Sandra Stangherlin was born in Murano on June 27th, 1952. Her glass works began in a Murano Furnace at the age of 15 as an apprentice-girl, like many others. About eight years later, at the age of 23, she became a first assistant or as it is commonly called within the handicrafts, collaborator of an engraver master and glass decorator. For five years she worked together with the most celebrated masters of that period: A. Ongarato, Zane, and acquired a precious experience that, together with her natural technique, ranged her among the best master-decorators of the 1980’s. She experimented mostly the “3 fires works” – a difficult, delicate and very refined decoration. This kind of workmanship is only manual and its execution requires great experience and sensibility. This production was started early using polychrome enamels to decorate beautiful (blown glass) vases, dishes and the famous glass sets, in the same way as the Chinese were decorating their porcelain. The Murano island’s decorators started at first to adorn mainly the glass called “Lattimo” that is white-opaque in colour, very similar to porcelain. Later on they also started to decorate transparent and coloured glass, and toward the end of the past century they improved the art of using enamel and gold on glass, by three successive phases of workmanship, each one by a further baking of the glass, hence “Three Fire” denomination. This beautiful workmanship and decoration today enriches the table sets. Maestro Sandra Stangherlin has collaborated on the creation of many works of art that have been acknowledged and admired by famous artists and collectors all over the world.
